"Together, you and I will destroy the gays." United American Technologies telemarketers sell their phone service as a Christian alternative to gay-loving rivals like ATT and MCI. Eugene Mirman recorded a few of their calls. More on United American Technologies here.

Calling out a double post without linking to the original?

You are so grounded.

Tape 2 made me spew my drink laughing... I'm almost scared to listen to tape 3.

(The ending of the first one, though, the last 1/2 second was beautiful.)

Are they mad future robots?

Exactly.

Amoral ... godless ... sex ... hello?


Hilarious.

Seriously.
WTF is going on with these people. To expend so much time, energy and money on such out-of-control hate. Sorry for being so naive, but...I just don't understand putting soooo much effort into stuff like this. I mean...what's the payoff for them? Are they simply so incredibly blinded by some promise of salvation?

Basically this is a company looking for customers, and they figured they could build a customer base based on those customers' hate. Perhaps they managed to hire some true believers to man the phone lines, but all in all this is just another corporation selling its soul for the almighty dollars; they just stoop considerably lower than most in their quest to worship Mammon.

Considering that they've been charging me and the mrs. for services we never ordered for months (long story), I'd say yes, they enjoy sodomizing the populace.

Where is the first post of which this is a supposedly a double?
posted by eustacescrubb at 6:16 PM on June 1, 2005


I don't think it is a double, 12V was too quick to call it out and I was too quick to assume he or she was right.

Guess this triple is really only a double. Sigh. We were so close to a front page hat trick.

"the gay shadow government..." I love it. Not only is there a "homosexual agenda", but now there's a shadow government, too.

Eugene Mirman is a great comic genius and you should all go see him if you get the chance. My favorite joke of his contains the line "I read that 100% of Americans were Asian," but I will not ruin it by saying any more.

Thanks 12V, it seems I am guilty after all. In my defense, the earlier post linked to a different URL, so that did not show up in my searches, nor did "Eugene Mirman" or "United American Technologies." Ah well.
